  • Sowell: The Left and the Masses

    Creators Syndicate ^ | October 18, 2016 | Thomas Sowell
    The greatest moral claim of the political left is that they are for the masses in general and the poor in particular. That is also their greatest fraud. It even fools many leftists themselves. One of the most recent efforts of the left is the spread of laws and policies that forbid employers from asking job applicants whether they have been arrested or imprisoned. This is said to be to help ex-cons get a job after they have served their time, and ex-cons are often either poor or black, or both. First of all, many of the left's policies to...

    It is never easy to tell what people's motives are. But, when the political left proclaims their devotion to improving the lives of others in general, and of the poor in particular, we can at least get some clues from the way they go about it. One of the first things the left does is take away the right of other people to make their own choices. For example, under current California law, Hispanic school children cannot be taught in Spanish if their parents want them taught in English. Like parents in other immigrant groups before them, Hispanic parents tend...

    Claiming the role of champions of the masses is something the political left has been doing ever since there has been a political left — which is to say, ever since the late 18th century, when people with such views sat on the left side of the French National Assembly. Like so much that is claimed by the left, their compassion for the masses has seldom been subjected to any factual test. Both their words and their deeds reveal their low opinion of the people they claim to be championing. When Barack Obama referred to ordinary working people as people...

    I recently joined 145 other scholars and writers in declaring support for Donald Trump for president. For every Trump supporter who agreed to join us, several others declined, believing that coming out publicly in favor of Trump would harm their careers. I’ve been upfront about my conservative views for more than 30 years, since before I got tenure, so any harm to me is probably already priced in. I debated economist James Galbraith in front of thousands in the University of Texas’s University Lecture Series in 2008, for example, arguing in favor of Republican presidential candidate Sen. John McCain (Ariz.)....

    Europe has one of the highest rates of prisoner suicides compared to other regions, according to the WHO. Prison reform advocates have called for alternative solutions for tackling the harrowing phenomenon. While questions over security and personal well-being have emerged in the wake of the Chemnitz explosives suspect Jafer Albakr’s death, figures show that prisoner suicides happen far too often. […] The UN Office for Drugs and Crime (UNODC) suggested in 2014 that suicide among prisoners appeared more frequently in Europe than other geographical regions, averaging 62 suicides per 100,000. …

    Renowned Christian thinker, Robert P. George, the McCormick Professor of Jurisprudence at Princeton University, satirically (and brilliantly) indicts the "personally opposed" position: "I am personally opposed to killing abortionists. However, inasmuch as my personal opposition to this practice is rooted in a sectarian (Catholic) religious belief in the sanctity of human life, I am unwilling to impose it on others who may, as a matter of conscience, take a different view. Of course, I am entirely in favor of policies aimed at removing the root causes of violence against abortionists. Indeed, I would go so far as to support mandatory...

    In left-wing Los Angeles, where defending oneself with a firearm is strictly frowned upon by the upper crust (after all, that’s what highly paid body guards are for) it has now been decided that police officers must run away like frightened children rather than challenge anyone brandishing a deadly weapon. In short, officers of the Los Angeles Police Department—Angelino’s first and last line of defense in the MAY issue, concealed carry license State of California—have been instructed to allow armed lunatics to go their merry way, attacking defenseless citizens, before confronting and threatening them with potential harm! Such was the...

    In 2008, when a Progressive friend expressed absolute horror that Sarah Palin was on the Republican ticket, I asked him to tell me why she was less qualified than Obama. After all, unlike Obama, Palin had experience governing. With his back against the wall, my friend uttered the worst indictment he could think of, and it had nothing to do with Palin’s abilities: “She’s not one of us.” As someone who is by birth and upbringing “one of us,” I know exactly what he meant.

By late May, the market cap hit reached $10.5 billion. As of the second week of June, the loss was $11 billion. Second-quarter earnings data are now out, showing that Target's earnings plummeted nearly 10%, with projected lower sales estimates for the remainder of 2016.

    over the past half century, the Reagan years notwithstanding, our ruling class’s changing preferences and habits have transformed public and private life in America. As John Marini shows in his essay, “Donald Trump and the American Crisis,” this has resulted in citizens morphing into either this class’s “stakeholders” or its subjects. And, as Publius Decius Mus argues, “America and the West” now are so firmly “on a trajectory toward something very bad” that it is no longer reasonable to hope that “all human outcomes are still possible,” by which he means restoration of the public and private practices that made...

    The only way to talk someone out of voting for Trump is to stop trying to talk them out of voting for Trump. To all my fellow progressives who’ve been busily browbeating supporters of this dangerous demagogue, you’re invited to become an early adopter of a far more rewarding, non-adversarial approach called “powerful non-defensive communication.” According to most commentators, the prototypical Trump supporter is an uneducated, narrow-minded bigot with legitimate grievances against the faltering economy which Trump has skillfully alchemized into violent rage toward non-whites, Muslims and successful women.

Roger understands that our ruling class isn’t much interested in understanding the real consequences of policy. With rare exceptions, the debate is about how the American “nomenklatura” feels about advocating one policy or another. It’s all about them, not about the election. In twenty-first century America, almost all of us seem to have concluded that “You are what you say you are. You are what you proclaim your values to be, irrespective of their consequences.” That is...

    Leftism has been on life support for fifty years. The Republican landslide in the 1966 midterm election was recognized by everyone at the time as a massive rejection of the agenda and the politics of the left. The reasons were clear. The War on Poverty produced race riots and idiocies like "Welfare Strikes." Having achieved civil rights, militant blacks were now demanding "Black Power." Affirmative action was so clearly discrimination that there were few serious minds who could coherently defend this vile incarnation of state-mandated bigotry. The left's approach to foreign threats was precisely as it is today: put in...

How do you destroy a country with a powerful economy, a strong military, and a moral and decent people? It has to be a long, slow process that moves subtly on many simultaneous fronts. If you become too bold, too fast, people will catch onto what you’re doing and even many of your biggest supporters will be forced to distance themselves from you….well, at least until...

From targeted advertising and insurance to education and policing, O'Neil looks at how algorithms and big data are targeting the poor, reinforcing racism and amplifying inequality. These "WMDs," as she calls them, have three key features: They are opaque, scalable and unfair. Denied a job because of a personality...

    It’s easy to be an American liberal. All that is required are hypocrisy and ignorance. Ignorance is an absolute must, but especially ignorance of three things: economics, human nature and all of recorded history. One has to be truly economically illiterate to believe that high taxes encourages productivity, that union-imposed labor regulations don't dis-incentivize hiring, that energy regulations don't raise prices on the poor and working class. Likewise, to be a liberal you must pretend that men and women are exactly alike in every respect and that communism produces the most happiness for the most people. Of course you can...

Instead, we find that the Left showers her not with affection and praise, but with scorn and disdain. On September 1, The Washington Post published an article titled “Why Mother Teresa Is Still No Saint to Many of Her Critics,” citing...

    In a social media-driven world, everyone is a brand. When everyone becomes a brand, virtue signaling is destined to become an epidemic. When you’re a liberal, the best way to show how much more virtuous you are than other people is to become offended. The more trivial the issue you are offended by, the more caring, enlightened and, yes, virtuous you appear to other liberals. Moreover, if you think white privilege, racism and rape culture are running rampant, you’ll want to find ways to distinguish yourself from the masses, whom you view as troglodytes.   As the great Thomas Sowell...

    Pennsylvania's first elected female attorney general announced her resignation Tuesday, a day after being convicted of abusing the powers of the state's top law enforcement office to smear a rival and lying under oath to cover it up. Democrat Kathleen Kane's exit completes a spectacular fall for the former county prosecutor who soared to victory four years ago as an outsider promising to break up an "old-boys' network" in state government. She squandered her early popularity, feuded with rivals and aides and ultimately was undone by what prosecutors portrayed as a personal vendetta against her critics and perceived enemies.

    The Milwaukee riots should be the last time the policies of liberal Democrats are held up as anything other than misery-inducing, divisive, exploitative and racist manipulation of the urban populations. Unfortunately they won’t. As Sheriff of Milwaukee County, I am furious that the progressive left has put my citizens in harm’s way and that I had to send my officers into cauldrons of anarchy and hatred that were created by the left. As an elected public servant I am livid that Milwaukee’s pathetic, kowtowing city officials and aldermen take this opportunity to abandon their citizens and preen before the...

    ""BREAKING: #Milwaukee Man Shot By Police Blood Gangbanger & Cousin Calling For “Gallon Of Blood” From Every Cop? #MilwaukeeUprising #BlackLivesMatter"" The armed black man shot in Milwaukee yesterday after fleeing police officers was probably Blood gangbanger of some kind. Ja’Kari Rocaine, who went to school in Milwaukee before moving to Detroit, says his cousin was the man shot and killed. He refers to him as a “Blood,” and uses hashtags referencing the “Trill Vill Gang.” The dead man named “Syville/Savill Smith” is pictured with a rifle. A reverse image search shows the picture exists nowhere else on the web, indicating...

    Liberalism gave us women's sports. Now liberalism is taking them away With reports of dead bodies and excrement floating in the water, the threat of Zika and the Russian doping scandal, the Rio Olympics appears the Frankenstein of athletic events. And now Rio seems dopey in another way: owing to political correctness, a runner with, reportedly, no womb or ovaries but internal testes will be allowed to compete with women. This person is South African middle-distance competitor Caster Semenya. I wrote of Semenya in 2009, back when Semenya (I’m not satisfied that Semenya is female, so henceforth I’ll refer to...
  • How did progressivism get re-branded as liberalism? Who did the re-branding?

    Coming off of the Woodrow Wilson years, the Democrat Party was the de-facto Progressive Party in the United States. Theodore Roosevelt's efforts had failed, and the GOP remained as having some constitutional elements in it. With the rise of Calvin Coolidge and the roaring 20's coupled with a reduction in government that makes most of us jealous, progressivism was looking like it was permanently eliminated. Technically, it was. In order to ensure its own survival, progressivism had to lie and say it was something else. That chosen title was "liberalism". Most of the time, when you and I think about...

    In the America I grew up in, the “liberals” were content to use government coercion to confiscate people’s money so they could spend it on their panoply of social engineering and vote-buying projects. They got to compel people to “join” Social Security, subsidize National Public Radio, pay for legions of needless bureaucrats in offices not authorized under the Constitution, bail out political cronies who cried “We’re too big to fail!” and so on. That kind of “liberalism” was bad enough, but the disease has of late developed new and far more vicious strains. Those involve attacks on Americans for not...
  • Pledge of Allegiance Had to Be Put on Teleprompter at DNC

    Truth Revolt ^ | July 26, 2016
    Things are off to a rocky start at the Democratic National Convention being held in Philadelphia, with Bernie Sanders supporters screaming over everyone in protest of Hillary Clinton being the nominee and the disgraceful fall of DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz. But what's even more embarrassing for the party that is clearly as divided as Republicans, is the fact that the Pledge of Allegiance had to be put up on teleprompters for the Democrats to be able to recite in unison to kick off the festivities.

    When Hillary Clinton said Tim Kaine is everything Donald Trump and Mike Pence are not she swerved into the truth. A quick look at everything she and Tim Kaine represent proves she is right although not in the sense that she meant. Here is a list of the groups and organizations that like and don’t like Democrat Vice Presidential nominee Tim Kaine. As a Democrat the putative Catholic Kaine gets his requisite 100% rating from the baby murderers at Planned Parenthood; and the Wildlife crowd (animals are always more important to Democrats than actual people) gave Kaine a 91%. The...
